3.0 out of 5 stars Don't (quite) believe the hype, Jan. 14 2005
This review is from: Funeral (Audio CD)
I suspect that, like many who picked up the CD, it was done based on rave reviews elsewhere. However, after giving a couple of listens to this CD, I have to admit being mildly disappointed. I was expecting tremendous things, but "Funeral" did not deliver. Perhaps it is the victim of heightened expectations; I don't know. Still, there are some excellent moments on this CD; however, they do not add up to a classic - certainly not one that ranked very high on critics' polls. The lead singer has both an off-putting and intriguing singing voice. It reminds me a bit of Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. For a debut album, this is very good. The talent is there, and I expect great(er) things from Arcade Fire. For now, I would easily give the nod to fellow Montrealers Stars "Set Yourself on Fire", which is the better of the two CDs.
